Easyjet had cancelled our flight to Italy and we were gutted. We had friends who spoke well of Portsmouth so that became Plan B. 2 hours out we decided to book our nights stay and The Florence Hotel had a vacancy - so we booked. Our luck had turned, we experienced a lovely hotel, in Southsea, within walking distance of the city. The Hotel, room and staff were excellent, and we had a very comfortable one night stay in what proved to be a stimulating city. Parking was a bit sticky, but the hotel sorted us a place. Thank you.
